That clip 18 seconds into smallweed's second link above is hilarious. What was the story there? Who were the teams?

I can only watch it with the sound down at the moment, but I'm assuming the defender thought for whatever reason that the whistle had gone, hence him playfully whacking the ball into the net.

I remember a game between Leeds and Southampton years ago where someone (Le Tissier maybe) scored a cracking low volley from outside the box, and the ball rolled under the obviously badly-secured net and came back on to the pitch off the advertising boards. Kind of gave the impression that it had gone wide so the Leeds players hilariously carried on, and the ref didn't award the goal.
I remember that too, though I'm almost certain it was Mark Hughes who (didn't) score. Got a feeling he might even have been playing for Everton at the time.

Hof, there isn't any sound of consequence on that part of the clip. Yours is the only possible explanation for what happened. My guess is that the poor sod was playing for Charleroi, no real guess for the other club (but it isn't Anderlecht, Standard, Brugge or Cercle Brugge, and all of that assumes it was top flight, which it might not be).

I kind of assumed that he scored an own goal in a bizarre attempt to prevent the goalkeeper from being sent off for deliberate handball outside the area?

Actually watching it again that doesn't seem the case from his dejected reaction.

The gloating from the oppo is a bit harsh isn't it?

I was trying to work it out myself, I can only think he thought the whistle had already been blown for the handball.

As for the early days of the backpass rule, the first game I saw with it in force was a Man City v QPR game (also Sky's first Monday night match in the first week of the newly-formed Premier League). Brightwell rolled it back towards Coton, Coton took a touch, picked it up, cleared it downfield, and like everybody else in the ground immediately realised what he'd done. everyone else in the ground apart from the referee, that is. How we laughed.

Best (but not pettiest) sendings off I ever saw was of course the Hogg / Levein double-dismissal when both were playing for Hearts in a pre-season friendly, which cost both of them ten match bans and Hogg a bloody nose.

There was, of course, the classic Alan Hudson 'goal' c 1970 which I'm sure someone on here will recall better than I. The ball entered the net through the side, the myopic ref awarding Chelsea a goal.

And Clive Allen's stanchion drive, of course - which thankfully didn't occur when he played for us. But then there's Mendes's beaut against United t'other year that did. Oh, I could go on.

There was this "goal" by Thomas Helmer in 1994 (00:56 min. onwards). In the clip, he half-admits to having acted the cunt at the time, but still places the blame squarely on the referee's and linesman's shoulders.
